Important Update—Please Read

We’re slowing things down thanks to the inspiration for this week’s design challenge and the world’s slowest animal: sloths!


Overview

Whether you find these mammals irresistibly cute (#slothlove) or are weary of their lethargic nature , create a repeating pattern depicting the sloth-mania that’s taken over the Spoonflower Marketplace. Hanging from tropical trees, swimming in water or slowly making their way through the rainforest, where will your sloth take you?

Prizes

  • 1st place winner will receive a $200 Spoonflower credit.
  • 2nd place winner will receive a $100 Spoonflower credit.
  • 3rd place winner will receive a $50 Spoonflower credit.
  • Remaining top 10 designs will receive a $20 Spoonflower credit. The top 50 popularly-voted designs from each theme will be automatically made available for sale in the Spoonflower Marketplace (provided they are a verified seller) where they will receive 10% commission on every sale -- no $5 swatch required.

Sloths Details

  • The deadline for entries is Tuesday, December 4, 2018 at 3 PM EST.
